Happy Sunday! I hope you've all had a great week. This week was incredibly productive for me- hurray! I even fashioned my own reflector for photos out of foam board and aluminum foil. LOL! I'm a mess, but at least I'll be a mess with awesome photos? Anyway, here's some of the things I've been reading this week!

// The Latest on Brikasia //

// The List //

// Jamming Out //

I've been listening to some of Kimbra's old stuff recently, and I figured I would share her genius with you guys. I am such a huge fan of this mashup she did a few years ago of "Two Weeks" by Grizzly Bear and "Head Over Heels" by Tears for Fears. It's DOPE.

Travel Guide: Madrid, Spain

posted on: 5.20.2015

Madrid Travel Guide, things to do in madrid, unique things to do in madrid, non tourist stuff to do madrid, plaza mayor
Lookin' like a damn superstar in Plaza Mayor
I can say this with certainty: Madrid, Spain has my heart. I've always considered myself a New York kinda gal, but spending two weeks in Madrid was a total game changer. This was my first international trip (I'm excluding all the cruises I've been on), and while there were certainly downfalls (I'm lookin' at you, gastroentiritus), the charm and beauty of Madrid made it all worthwhile.

I thought that today I would share with you some of my favorite pictures from my trip, along with some of my recommendations on things to do in Madrid. This is going to be a lengthy post (hence the "read more" link), so click through for my full travel diary!

Weekend Wrap Up // No. 60

posted on: 5.17.2015

WWU60
Happy Sunday! I hope you've all had a great week. As you probably noticed, it's been rather quiet around these parts this week, and for that I am truly sorry! Like I touched on in last week's Weekend Wrap Up, I've been dealing with some health issues lately and haven't been well enough to blog. But I think I've finally gotten everything handled, so I'm looking forward to a really productive week this upcoming week! I guess the upside of being ill for a couple of weeks is the fact that my brain is kind of forced to churn out new ideas, and I've actually kind of gotten some weird resurgence of inspiration. So, I mean, if that's what it takes... Just kidding! Anyway, enough of me rambling. Here's the latest!

// The Latest on Brikasia //

// The List //

  • Laurie really makes me want to buy these Tory Burch palettes. (312 Beauty)
  • Here's a really great guide to throwing the ultimate girl's night in! (Hairspray & Highheels)
  • This vintage yellow caftan is a dream! (Shikshin)
  • Here is a REALLY great post on updating your foundation routine. (The Fabzilla)

// Jamming Out //

I recently found out about Danish musician MØ while perusing Spotify and I'm kind of hooked. This song has me addicted. It's totally jamworthy and is so great to dance along to while driving.
